Shaheen playing too much, his workload needs to be managed: Amir


Karachi: Veteran pacer Mohammad Amir has shown concern on young left-arm pacer Shaheen Shah’s workload management.

The 28-year-old believes that the 20-year-old is a blessing for Pakistan cricket but he is playing too much and needs a sufficient amount of rest.

“Everyone knows Shaheen is playing too much. He can carry on like this at the moment, due to his young age, but later on, in his career, this will cause problems for him,” Amir said in an interview with Cricket Pakistan.

“He is a blessing and is also leading Pakistan’s bowling attack. I know that he wants to continue playing and does not like resting but his workload needs to be managed,” he added.

Amir once again voiced his disappointment after not over not being named in Pakistan’s squad for New Zealand tour.

“As a professional, it was disappointing because I was expecting my name in the squad. I still couldn’t understand the selector’s decision but this motivates me to perform in a better manner, improve my fitness and reclaim my place in the side,” he maintained.

It must be noted that Amir is currently in Sri Lanka where he will represent Galle Gladiators in the upcoming inaugral Lanka Premier League (LPL).
